New research shows that allergies may cause difficulty sleeping

Allergies may not only cause you misery while you're awake, but often as you attempt to hit the hay as well.

Recently, Teva Respiratory released the results of the 2010 Nasal Allergy Survey Assessing Limitations, which showed that allergic rhinitis is directly linked to sleep complications. Symptoms, such as post-nasal drip and repeated sneezing, can significantly reduce an individual's ability to get a good night's rest.

"The negative impact that allergic rhinitis symptoms can have on a patient's quality of sleep is considerable, as it not only affects them physically, but also emotionally," said Gary Gross, a doctor with the Allergy and Asthma Center in Dallas, Texas.

Individuals who suffer from respiratory conditions and allergies may want to consider placing an air purifier in their sleeping space. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one product that can get rid of irritants within 900 square feet.

The air purifier also contains a HyperHEPA filter, which can catch everything from dust to pollen. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size for optimum breathing conditions.
